Bottled water will be provided.

Event will run rain or shine, however may be canceled due to severe weather conditions.

What is provided: All necessary tools, including gloves, pickers, bags, sharp containers and safety instruction.

Directions: Please meet staff at the crosswalk across from the Edward J. McCormack Bathhouse at Carson Beach (pictured above). Parking and bike racks are available there. The closest public transit stop is JFK/UMass station on the Red Line, a 0.6 mile walk.
